hey guys i just did the xbox 360 slim 12v fan mod (out of being bored lol) . just wondering is it safe to keep the fan running at 12v all the time? like will it cause fan problems or overheating problems later on somehow? i can always just fix it. but id like to know if its okay.

It will be fine to run the fan at 12v. The only downside I have had with the 12v mod is the noise. I have it done to my Falcon Jtag. But other then that It is great to have this, and for Fat Xbox 360's It drops the temperature of the CPU and GPU significantly.

Overall my point is, if anything this is good for your xbox :tongue:

Happy Modding!

I don't know why you would even do that to the slim, there is no reason to at all. Not only is the chip engineered to run a little hotter, the air is vented out the side of the case instead of the back, which avoids flexing of the motherboard (thought to have contributed to RROD in phats).

Anyway, read the fan. If it says "12v" on it, it's safe to run it at 12 volts statically. Of course, using common sense will tell you that if its running faster, it probably wont last as long because the brushes in the motor will wear faster, but it'll probably be fine.

12 volt fan mod on a slim is retarded and not needed at all. All your going to do is ware the lifetime of the fans and make them break eventually. The slim is designed to shutdown if it gets too hot and slims have a 95.82342342% chance of not breaking.
